Abstract Research has identified a number of parallels to Paul's Areopagus Speech (Acts 17:22–31) in Greco-Roman philosophy. This aspect needs further clarification. Based on the fact that Luke portrays Paul in analogy to Socrates, this essay argues that the main issues of the Areopagus Speech's theology have significant parallels in the Socratic tradition. This will be shown particularly on the basis of Xenophon's Memorabilia, Plato's early dialogues, and later traditions that refer to Socrates.
